    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    Hey Brian,
    Quick question for you. I know you install these jammers.
    What would you say is a reasonable price to pay for Labor for Front and Rear with Factory ELocker? This is for a Shop rate.

    I ask because my friend down near me owns a Landcruiser shop, and he gave me a price that I believe is way out of scope.
    As I would be providing the gears.

    I think the going rate in Denver is $2500 to $3500 and they will not let you source your own parts.

    So that 2500-3500 is just to put them in correct? Just wanting to clarify.

    I’d like to know for certain as well. Here’s my reasoning...There are a bunch of folks here who tow in OD, but Toyota doesn’t recommend it. I believe Toyota’s recommendation is based on the transmission. If so, then I don’t think changing the gears would matter.

    hmmm well i called hyper tech (because that’s the calibration unit i have when i put on bigger tires) and they said you do need to recalibrate that’s why they have a setting for gear ratio changes...

    $1250 LABOR to Install:

    5.29 Gears
    Air lockers F&R, lines and 3 switches (cubby)
    Clamshell bush
    Twin compressor
    ADM
    RWD only Low harness and switch (center panel)

    $2600 is high but I am letting them make a decent margin on the diffy parts

    $850 labor sounds like a great deal

    No. If you change gears ONLY no, no you don't. They are not correct. Now maybe they thought you are changing both. BUT don't trust me, ask others or read what @thefatkid posted.

    I don’t think any manufacturer recommends towing in OD gears but your performance will obviously be significantly better in 4th, more so for mountain passes and the like.

    You probably don’t need 5.29s to tow in Kansas but once you hit the mountains the 5.29s will pull a bit better on the steeps.

    You don’t need to recalibrate for gears on the Tacoma. I ran stocks for a while and can confirm as well.

    This is why you DONT set the gearing on the hypertech.
